Wow, the suspense! - The Guilty review by PT

Spoiler Alert

Sit back and live the suspense as the story unfolds for Asger.

Brilliantly simple setting and idea.

Brilliant acting!

The focus is tight, the story is intense and you are held in suspense while you live the story through Asger, and it doesn't let up once it starts right through to the end.

Totally believable characters.

Nothing Hollywood here ,,, just an excellent film.

In Danish with subtitles.

An outstanding one-hander - The Guilty review by AB

Spoiler Alert

First off - this film is subtitled. If you are OK with subtitles then this is a tense, psychological thriller. It is set entirely in a police emergency call centre, and is the story of how one cop handles a very difficult call from a kidnapped woman. He, Asger, appears to be handling the situation extremely well, until there is a horrible twist in the plot.

Although you only hear the phone conversations between Asger and the various people involved in the drama, you do feel that you start to know them and what they are going through. Asger himself has his own major problem, and this ordeal he goes through leaves him a better person. It is brilliantly done. Recommended.
